Connected vehicle debate due
First publishedon www.WorldHighways.com
The US Department of Transportation (US DoT) is hosting a free public meeting and webinar, from 25-27 September, 2012, to provide an update on its research and promote a lively discussion on the Connected Vehicle Safety, Vehicle-to-Infrastructure, and Testing programmes. There will also be a special session discussing lessons learned in deploying ITS technology in the United States. The meeting is being organised by the ITS Joint Program Office (ITS JPO), which is part of the Research and Innovative Technology Administration (RITA).
The goal of this forum is to identify research results to date and discuss what remains to be done to get to the 2013 National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) decision on Vehicle Communications for Safety, outline what is evolving in terms of a robust vehicle-to-infrastructure environment, and identify what US DoT has learned from past ITS deployments that can help with success for the future.
